Unfamiliar bird song


Recommended Posts

Hmm.  Seems I've run into technical difficulties...

For whatever reason, when I try to link to the uploaded video on my 3rd party hosting site, only the still image (vidcap) appears in my forum post.

So instead I tried uploading my video directly into the forum post [like I think I've been successful in doing once before] - but when the video upload is 99% complete, it stops and gives me a "-200" error.  Does anyone know what this means, and how to get around it?

Thanks.

I had that problem yesterday (also with photos). I just refreshed the page and it worked fine. 

 

Thanks.  I'll give it another go, and try to think of something else if I still have problems...  👍

Offhand, I'd say it's not a match.  Being a novice when it comes to bird calls, I assume "pattern/rhythm" is important, besides "voice"?  This bird that I've recorded here has had the exact same song upon multiple observations.  Never have caughta glimpse of the bird, though.

I'm not sure if I'm hearing two birds at once or not, but I think it sounds kind of like a Baltimore Oriole.  And, yes, that's an American Robin at 3 seconds.

 

I'd say Baltimore Oriole is a distinct possibility, since I've seen them in the area rather sporadically.  Still, I've played ever BO song & call on both my Audubon and Merlin apps and - while the voice/pitch sound similar, the patterns certainly don't.  And as I mentioned above, this mysterious bird has the same song, day in and day out.

Hoping to try again soon for a better recording; or even a glimpse of the culprit...

Baltimore Oriole songs vary from individual to individual.  I'm not sure they have any "default" songs.

 

Hmm, very interesting.  Good to know, thanks. ...So I'd say that possibility remains a good candidate for my "mystery bird".

 

Curious... Are there other species for which that's true?
